The petite Australian popstar lived in Britain for more than three decades before deciding to return to her native country, but she regularly visits because of her Welsh beau.
Despite returning to Australia, Kylie Minogue will always hold a special place in British hearts.
The 54-year-old made the UK seem like home, starting with her breakthrough role as Charlene Robinson in the Australian serial opera Neighbours and continuing with her 2001 hit Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, which spent four weeks at number one on the UK charts.
The Covid-19 pandemic may have influenced her decision to go to Australia and be closer to her family, but that won’t diminish the country’s love for the Spinning Around singer.
With Kylie At The BBC on BBC2 starting at 9.10 p.m. on Saturday, September 24, and Kylie Minogue: Reel Stories following an hour later, viewers will be able to relive some of her most memorable professional moments.
The Mirror takes a look at Kylie’s previous and current relationships to commemorate Auntie’s choice to give us a two-hour Kylie retrospective.
When they first met, Jason and Kylie were both teenagers and working as on-screen lovers Scott and Charlene in the Australian soap opera Neighbours in 1986.
They later released a duet called Especially For You, which debuted at number one in the UK two years later.
Later, he claimed that their relationship ended because of his intense jealousy of Kylie’s success and wealth when her pop career took off.
In a candid interview with Piers Morgan for Life Stories, Donovan said: “It was a jealousy issue. I could see her evaporating. Even though I’m sure it happened earlier, it wasn’t until I saw her heading in one direction that I feared I was going to lose her.
When the two actors joined the Melbourne-based soap opera for its farewell episode, which aired earlier this year, fans of Neighbours went crazy.
From 1989 to 1991, Kylie and the INXS vocalist were romantically involved. They remained close friends until his passing six years later.
She called her two-year relationship with Michael, who committed suicide, “wonderful” when discussing it with Jonathan Ross.
Kylie and American singer Lenny Kravitz had a brief relationship in 1991.
Although the two have been mum about their specific relationship, a romance has been widely publicised.
Stéphane Sednaoui is a French actor, director, and photographer who Kylie dated for two years.
Her popular 1998 song Breathe is said to have been influenced by the couple’s union.
While travelling with Stéphane in late 1995, Kylie wrote the lyrics while in Tokyo.
From 2000 to 2003, Kylie and the former model were a couple.
He described the singer as a “self-obsessed, practically friendless, control freak” in a kiss-and-tell interview he conducted after their breakup.
In New York, he admitted to having an extramarital affair with model Sophie Dahl.
In response, the I Should Be So Lucky singer said their breakup was “entirely down to him using drugs and drinking.”
Before breaking up in 2007, the celebrity and French actor had a five-year relationship.
At the time, they issued a united statement denouncing claims that he had cheated.
The decision to part ways was mutual and friendly, according to the couple.
They were both saddened by the false accusations of betrayal made by the media. The two are still good friends, according to the statement.
When Kylie was 36 years old and given a breast cancer diagnosis in 2005, she spoke the following year about how Martinez had been there for her throughout the journey.
He would tell her, “OK, honey, you may cry for just five minutes, then I’m taking you on the bike for a ride around Paris,” as she was sobbing on the bathroom floor, she said to Elle.
While filming an advertisement for her perfume line in 2008, Kylie met the model Andres Velencoso.
She jokingly made light of the fact that she dated the chiselled Spaniard for so long despite the fact that he was 10 years her junior.
At their 48-month anniversary, she exclaimed, “Sound the alarm, four years – I think it’s a record!”
The couple attributed their breakup to their hectic schedules, and Kylie later acknowledged that it had been a difficult breakup.
When Kylie started dating British actor Joshua Sasse in 2015, it appeared as though she had finally found “The One.”
In February 2016, the couple even got engaged, with Josh referring to Kylie as his fiancée at the NME Awards.
Unfortunately, cheating claims surfaced, and in 2017 the couple separated.
She later claimed it was “delusional” of her to have believed their relationship would succeed.
Then, at the age of 49, Kylie claimed that after she and Joshua separated, she considered starting a family on her own but ultimately decided she was happy being an aunt.
“I mean, if I were to meet somebody… the chances are fairly high that that person would have children anyhow,” she said at the time to Vogue Australia. Therefore, I believe having children of my own is less likely.
Kylie and Paul Solomons, the creative director of the British GQ magazine, have been dating since 2018.
The Welshman, 46, has Kylie completely smitten.
On the occasion of her 50th birthday, she announced their relationship by posting a cute photo of them together.
In response to rumours that the couple was engaged and preparing for a clandestine wedding in Kylie’s hometown of Melbourne, she insisted that they are “happy as they are.”
Even though Paul is still in the UK and Kylie has returned to Australia, they insist they are still “very much a couple” and are maintaining their long-distance relationship.
